CSM+B and extra iron?

So far I have been doisng Flourish and Flourish Iron for my Micro dosings. I have exhausted my supply of Flourish and am turning to CSM+B.

I have read in different threads, the (dry) dosing guideline seems to be 1/16tsp per 20G. Per this guideline, I am assuming a dry dosing regime of approx. 1/4tsp for my 75G. Can someone confirm this, please?

Also, should I still dose Flourish iron when I start on CSM+B, I have heard that it contains iron. Currently I dose about 4ml 3x/week.

yes that should suffice. But, do watch your plants for possible micro (Fe) deficiencies.

As a comparison, I dose 1/8 tspn 3 X a week on my 29g tank.

I dose 3/8-1/4 tsp for my 90 gal, so maybe what you said may be a smidgeon too much. Try a slightly short 3/8 tsp dose
